Good evening, grandchildren. Please have a seat by the fireplace and make yourself comfortable. Does everyone have their Snuggies® and hot chocolate? Wonderful. By the way, I’m sorry to hear that your parents are getting divorced.
"What are fables?"
That’s a very good question, Johnny! Fables, like Zsa Zsa Gabor, have been an important part of human history since the beginning of time. They teach us important moral lessons, such as “You are judged by the company you keep,” “Treat others as you wish to be treated,” and “You can’t get AIDS by sharing a toothbrush.”
"Where can I read more fables?"
In a fantastic new book written and illustrated by Ryan Shattuck, called Moderately Important Fables.
"What is Moderately Important Fables about?”
Ryan Shattuck — an author you’ve never heard of but who probably exists — spent 57 years visiting every corner of the globe, collecting some of the most important fables in human history. He then organized these stories into a book called Moderately Important Fables, so that future generations might finally learn of the most life-changing fables ever recorded.
Some of the stories in Moderately Important Fables include:
"When will Moderately Important Fables be released?”
As soon as Ryan Shattuck finds a publisher.
"How can I contact you?"
There are exactly four ways to contact Ryan Shattuck, author of Moderately Important Fables.
That is all. Only four ways.
"Why are my parents getting a divorce?"
Because you ask too many questions, Johnny.
